The Strong Hearts Native Society Pow Wow 
Winterhaven, CA

A must see event every year in Winterhaven, CA close to Yuma, AZ. You get swept away by the beautiful costumes, the beat of the drums, the singing, the dancing and the closeness of the family and tribal units. There is too much to write about here. We can enjoy looking at pictures but you have to be there to feel the spirit of the moment. Some things are difficult to describe with words.
